Former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega made an appearance as an NPC in Activision's 2012 title, Call of Duty: Black Ops II. However, unlike most who would be stoked to see their virtual mug, Noriega is not happy about the inclusion.
After being ousted from power by the United States in 1989, the former leader was tried in 1992 and charged with various counts pertaining to drug trafficking, racketeering, and money laundering. Though his federal sentence ended in 2007, Noriega is currently in a Panamanian prison serving a 20 year sentence for murder and money laundering. Despite his incarceration, Noriega caught wind of his avatar's existence, and is seeking to sue Activision for "blatant misuse, unlawful exploitation, and misappropriation for economic gain."
Essentially, Noriega's claims stem from the alleged damage done to his image by the game, as well as unpaid royalties for his appearance. Noriega's character appeared in the mission, "Suffer With Me", in which the player is tasked with tracking Noriega down and capturing him.
